Sure, betony isn't very well known in the home garden yet, but we think Hummelo can change that. It was the superstar of the Plant Evaluation Trials at the Chicago Botanical Garden. Out of the 22 top varieties of betony they tested, Hummelo received the highest rating. Why? It is unmatched for performance. It's low maintenance and so easy to grow. Bright, feathery blooms hover over a perfectly dense mound. The colors are highly saturated and go with just about anything. And you can grow it just about any way you want. It thrives in acidic, clay, loamy and sandy soils. Feature it in sunny borders, naturalize it around a woodland garden, edge a walkway with Hummelo to draw attention to it, get a good look at its flowers in a patio pot, brighten up your cut flower bouquets…or if you just can't get enough of this betony, turn it into a dense, carefree perennial ground cover. In a warm climate, it may even be an evergreen ground cover. You'll be pleased with how easy Hummelo makes your gardening, and pollinators will be thankful for the treat. It won't draw attention of rabbits and deer, though, they tend not to eat betony. Stachys monieri 'Hummelo'
